Rigor Dermatology & Laser Center offers Radiesse® treatments to the residents of Pasadena, CA. We also service Los Angeles, CA. Radiesse® works by stimulating your body’s collagen production. Collagen is a natural substance that works as an underlying structure for your skin. Age, stress and some lifestyle choices, such as smoking, deplete your collagen levels. As a result, your skin loses volume, and you develop fine lines and wrinkles. Radiesse® contains small microspheres that work with the skin’s connective tissue to build a lattice-type structure under your skin. Radiesse® stimulates collagen production to fill in the spaces in this lattice work.

What happens during the Radiesse® treatment at Rigor Dermatology & Laser Center?
